The crypto trade descended into chaos final week after a collection of fast-paced occasions. The difficulty purportedly began after Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao tweeted that the crypto change would unload a few of rival change FTX’s native token, FTT, on account of ‘danger administration’ points. That drove the value of FTT down and fueled a selloff. Quickly after, FTX was compelled to halt withdrawals from the change. CEO Sam Bankman-Fried — or SBF as he’s identified — began purchasing round for a bailout. Then Bankman-Fried tweeted that the corporate had discovered a savior in its former rival, Binance.

However inside a day the deal was off. Binance backed out citing due diligence issues and FTX’s questionable dealing with of its clients’ funds. Paperwork have been leaked exhibiting FTX was coping with important monetary difficulties and appeared near collapse, which apparently it was: FTX quickly filed for chapter and Bankman-Fried resigned as his $16 billion greenback fortune evaporated. A spectacular outflow of cash from crypto exchanges ensued and Bloomberg reported that federal probes of FTX and SBF have been underway. 

How did all of it go so incorrect for FTX and what does this imply for the way forward for digital-assets? We’ve got the newest updates with Bloomberg reporters Katie Greifeld and Vildana Hajric.
